Yep, it's my car alright. This car is making me more famous by the day!! The dealer (Research in Nuneaton) took some pics which hopefully will be in the Coventry paper, Courtster's took some pics for his blog and now the detailing pics!

I wanted a good proper clean/polish/wax/seal etc. and I'm feeling a bit lazy on my week off so I though I'd pay someone to do a proper job on it. Turned out really well & very pleased with the results from one of the top detailers around - and he's only 14!!

i like having a clean car but the thing is after you've driven it for an hour, or it gets rained on, it doesn't look the same, it's a waste of time going too mad on cleaning i think.

Thats why you do it properly and put a finishing coat of wax on it. Water just runs off then ;)

No problem, each to their own and all that. Does have metal pedals though ;)

I'm still unsure about the wheels though. Personally I think they'd suit a white car much better. Getting very tempted to go for the Assetto upgrade when it's available as the white wheels really do the car colour justice. Think it looks a lot better too with 18's and slightly lowered. Other than that could try and do a swap with another Abarth owner for the standard wheels & a bit of cash, we'll see.

Nice looking motor - personally I prefer the standard wheels. The black plastic looks cool, reminds me of the Strada Abarth. I'd quite like one but can't help thinking it's a car designed for early 20 something blokes. Not really for someone in their 30's with kids; the neighbours might think I'm having an early mid life crisis.
